Image Ormedic Eye Balancing Lift Gel

I am reviewing Image Skincare’s Ormedic Balancing Eye Life Gel. I love Image Skincare. It is definitely not cheap but they do some lovely products. I love their Iluma range, especially the Intense Brightening Serum.

I have the Balancing Eye Cream a while now and have been using it everyday.

Image say that this is a balancing, hydrating and lifting eye gel with organic ingredients and medical effectiveness. Multi-peptide formula reverses the signs of ageing. This eye gel is marketed towards all skin types. I am turning 30 very soon (the panic is starting to kick in, believe me) and so eye cream has become a staple in my skincare. As I am not a morning person I have been enjoying using Benefit’s Puff Off most mornings which I reviewed here not too long ago. So, I have been using the Eye Lift Gel in the evenings, it is recommended to use for both occasions though.

I love the packaging of this eye gel, the product comes out of a pump, and for me, one pump per eye is enough.

Although it is a gel, it has a creamy consistency so does feel hydrating on the skin which some gels don’t always do. I can get dry under my eyes so I am very glad of this. It has a pleasant smell and rubs into the skin really easily, leaving behind pretty much no residue. Some eye creams can leave behind a tacky sensation, which really isn’t very pleasant. The Ormedic Balancing Eye Lift Gel doesn’t though, it sinks in really well. Although I am heading into my 3rd decade on this planet…yuck. I have oily skin, I get spots galore, but wrinkles (so far) have been kind to me. I do notice after using the Balancing Eye Lift Gel that the area around my orbital bone feels soft and nourished.

I can’t really say it reverses the signs of ageing, I don’t think any product really can, but it is a lovely eye cream and is lovely to use for more preventative measures. We can all get behind that mentality πŸ™‚

Benefit Puff Off

When Benefit bring a new product out, they always do it so well. Their marketing department are amazing. One of their new launches, “Puff Off” is no different. The packaging is so cool, the applicator is an iron for god’s sake πŸ™‚

Benefit Puff Off“Puff Off” is an eye gel to help wake up your eyes and help get rid of any puffiness and I think it does a pretty good job of this. The iron applicator may be whimsical but it does a really good job and fitting into the contour of your orbital bone and helps to massage the product in as well as helping to drain any fluid you might have built up. It is metal too which is nice and cooling on the skin.

The product itself comes out of the middle of the applicator. Be careful when dispensing it, as alot can come out of the squeezy tube.

IMG_4915Benefit suggest you put three small splodges around your eye and then blend in with the applicator.

The gel soaks into the skin really quickly, so it’s perfect for the morning time when you don’t have time to mess around. Benefit claims you can use Puff Off over makeup too, so I suppose if you are having an extra long day you could pop some on to get rid of some of the signs of over tiredness and lack of sleep.

This is a lovely product and it does do what it says on the tin. However if you need alot of hydration under your eyes, I don’t know if it will be for you, as it is a gel formula so it not super emollient.

I would recommend it if you are looking for a product to perk you up in the morning and make you physically seem more awake.

Puff Off is available at Benefit stockists now and costs €30.50
